COMMEMORATION OF WOMEN'S HISTORY

The Letter W omen's participation has often been manifested through collective action. This has focused attention on women's organizations, social reform, community life and the family. Often, women's interests were integrated into other movements, communities, ethnic groups and classes where women played a key, but not always a leading role.
Although many National Historic Sites of Canada speak to both men's and women's experiences in the past, much remains to be done to address adequately the importance of women to Canadian history. To guide the enhancement of the recognition of women's history in Canada within the system, Parks Canada has prepared a number of framework studies. These provide a context for the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada's review of potentially significant sites, persons and events. Dr. Helen MacMurchy - Advocate of Public Health Reforms

To date, Parks Canada has completed three studies:
  • Women and Health;
  • Women and Power; and
  • Women and Work.
Two additional studies have been identified as essential to guide this strategic priority. These are:
  • Women and Education; and
  • Women and Technology.
